Excerpt from Personal and Military History of Philip Kearny: Major-General United States Volunteers

That elegant force in history, which characterized Taurus and plutarch, seems to have disappeared in our time; certainly in biographies. When I com pare the present Sketch with the Ideal which I had conceived, it is with actual timidity that I venture to publish it. A perfect biography I cannot indeed prepare, since the Count (schaumburg-lippe) carefully kept secret the majority of his greatest deeds. It was my simple intention to portray even his character as a commander and a ruler (organizer) from the stand-point of his magnanimity, and establish every trait of this picture with anecdotes. Yet even such a sketch, at least with my powers, can be nothing more than a fragment. Perhaps I may claim that no one at a previous time could have produced comparatively as complete a history of the Count's career as this one. Lest any one should find fault, or occasion for it should appear, I did not embody much information which I actually possessed. I do not urge this as a satisfactory ex cuse for the faults of my work, but simply as a reason why they merit pardon, and on that account I pray the indulgence of the public.
